Prince 04-20 Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

PrincePrincePrince
My name is Prince. I am 9 years old and weigh about 14 pounds. I came to SRC when my people moved into a new place and they couldn’t take me with them.
My foster mom called me Scruffy when she first met me – it had been a long time since a haircut, and I was pretty scared about all the changes in my life. When I saw the doctor, I got medicine for ear infections and my itchy skin. After ten days, I am a whole new dog! I’m really curious about the back yard, and I try to chase the cat whenever she is around. I get along well with the other two dogs in the house, and love people. My bark is soft and low – I make up for that with my beautiful singing voice! I needs a fenced yard and no kids, thanks!
Prince does have a Grade 4 heart murmur and will be on meds from now on. He has a sweet disposition. He loves a good snuggle. He’d be a great addition to a quiet household.

His adoption fee is only $250.

Porter 0715-02 – Has Been Adopted!!! Schnauzer Mix • Adult • Male • Small

PorterPorter
Hello, my name is Porter. I don’t know how old I am but the vet guesses around eight years old.
I am neutered, up to date on my shots and heartworm negative. I am a schnauzer mix and I am very small, only ten pounds.
I don’t know where I came from. I was found wandering the streets in Louisville, KY all matted and very, very scared. My foster mom included a picture of what I looked like when they found me! I was taken to the local animal shelter where they tried to help me, but I was so scared. I didn’t like this place at all. Fortunately, one of the workers knew about Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati/Florida, and contacted them so they could come and rescue me!
Currently I am living in a foster home with a bunch of other schnauzers. When I first got here, I was very timid, and just sat and watched everyone play. After a while it looked like so much fun that I decided that I just had to join! I also discovered this bin with lots and lots of toys in it. Oh heaven!! I don’t remember if I ever had a squeaky toy before but they are so much fun!! I love to drag all the toys out, and decide which one I want to play with.
I’m still afraid around other humans but I am working on that. I love to go for walks in the park, and my foster mom says I am the perfect gentleman on the leash. I love to curl up next to my foster mom at night. I need a furever home so badly, one where someone is patient with me as I learn to trust people again. If you could be that person, would you please fill out an application for me?

My adoption fee is only $275!

Señorita – Has Been Adopted!!! Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Medium

SeñoritaSeñorita
Hello, my name is Señorita. I am an eleven year old miniature schnauzer.
I am up to date on my shots, spayed and am heart worm negative. Though it goes against my grain to admit this, I am currently 24 pounds. My foster mom says that Señorita is the perfect name for me because I am every inch the lady.
I came to Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati/Florida after my owner died, and her husband could not take care of me or my sister Chiquita. He posted us on Craigslist, and fortunately someone saw the post and contacted Schnauzer Rescue. Though I am eleven years old, don’t let my age fool you. I still have a lot of life left in me. I love to go on walks. I love to play with chew toys, and I really love to play with my sister Chiquita. Currently I am trying really, really hard to teach all the boy schnauzers in my foster home some manners. This is a full time job. These boys just love to rough, and tumble and get into mischief, but I do love them and get a long great with all of the dogs here. There is another schnauzer here named Noah who has a wee bit of a crush on me. This old girl still has her flirt on!!
I am looking forward to finding someone who will love me and take me for walks and let me curl up at their feet. I am quiet as befits a lady, and am very gentle to everyone I meet. If you would be willing to be my forever home, please fill out an application for me.

My adoption fee is only $300!

Maui 0316-11– Has Been Adopted!!! Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Small

MauiMauiMaui
Hi my name is Maui. I am a 9 year old female. I am looking for a family who is ready to love me for the rest of my life.
I will fool you when you see my, because I don’t look or act my age. I love to play and have gotten along with all of my foster brothers and sisters from the get go. I even "tolerate" the house pig although he isn’t my favorite. I still have a lot of play left in me. I am very good inside and do very well in my crate when my family is away. I unfortunately  don’t have many teeth, and have a history of bladder stones in my past so it is best to keep me on my special dog food so I don’t get them again. Please consider me for the next addition to your family. I am being fostered in central Indiana by Stacey.

My adoption fee is only $275.

Maxwell 08-12 – Has Been Adopted!!! Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

MaxwellMaxwellMaxwell
Hello,
My name is Maxwell and I have my 3rd birthday next month.
I weigh 18 lbs. and am pure white in color with brown eyes. I was born to a breeder and adopted by an older couple. A year or so later, my human Dad died and my mom had health issues so had no choice but give me up. She gave me to her daughter and all was fine until one day on a walk, my harness was not fastened tightly and I slipped out of it. Being so young, I started running. A man was able to catch me; but doing so it really scared me and I bit him. It wasn’t a bad bite; but still my Mom did not want to deal with working with me or taking me to a trainer to build my confidence.  Instead, she called Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati and surrendered me.  I was so sad and scared... she didn’t even have a tear in her eye. Now what will happen to me I thought!
I am been in a foster home since my surrender with five other schnauzers all who took me under their wing from day one.
I am a very protective boy and will bark and react if surprised so my mom is working on that with me along with a trainer.
There was one other bite incident I had a few months ago when a repairman came into the house without my knowledge and I did bite him; but again not badly.
I am really a good boy otherwise in the home. I never mark, know basic commands love other fosters that come and go. My ideal forever home would be a quiet one with no children, a physical fenced yard and most of all... an owner willing to continue my positive reinforcement training that my foster mom and dad are currently working with me on.
I have no health issues, have been neutered since a pup and am microchipped. My adoption fee is $300 which is not much for the lifetime of love I have to share with the right home.
Thanks, Max

My adoption fee is only $300.

Maddy 1-01 – Has Been Adopted!!! Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Small

MaddyMaddy

My name is Maddy and I am a 11 year old female schnauzer girl. I was purchased from a pet store as a puppy and had one owner my whole life. My owner is now 96 years old and not able to take care of a dog any more so she gave me to the local shelter. I was so frightened and scared as you can imagine. Thank goodness though the shelter called Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati and the very next day a volunteer who lived close by pulled me... she is now my foster mom.
I was taken to the groomer and then to the rescue vet for a checkup and to have my pearlies cleaned. Even at 11 years, I did not loose one tooth! He was surprised how healthy my eyes are as well. I do have the very early stages of Cushings disease he said; but not on any medication or special diet. I also have a heart murmur so take a pill each day to keep that stable.
I walk great on the leash and I love to take rides in the car. My foster mom has five other fur kids here and I get along with all. You can see by my video that I love toys... my mom made me a movie star!
My dream for the new year is to find a forever home of my own. Would you find it in your heart to fill out an application and you can find out even more about me.  Thanks, Maddy

See me in action!

My adoption fee is only $225.

Nikki 03-14 – Has Been Adopted!!! Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Small

NikkiNikki
My name is NIKKI – I am a two year-old miniature schnauzer – without the schnauzer haircut. But, my foster mom says I’m a stunner – even without it! I lived all my life in an outdoor breeder kennel, so I didn’t get much attention. One day a nice lady from Schnauzer Rescue came and took me (and my friend Joey) to her house! What a surprise! I was scared at first but I sure did like my new foster home. There were toys, kids, kitties and other dogs there. It took me a few days to get used to being inside but after a few days I felt safe and started checking the place out.
My new foster mom says... NIKKI is very sweet and affectionate. If you lift her up on the sofa she will be your cuddle buddy for as long as you want! But she has some trust issues, and needs a lot of patience and encouragement at first. Everything most dogs do is scary to her – Even going in and out the door to the backyard – but she adapts quickly and before you know it she will put her trust in you. She is potty trained and crate trained. She will drag a leash around with no problem, but she needs some encouragement walking with it. She does very well with the other dogs in the house, and barks at the cats but never bothers them. She loves to play with the resident dogs, and she will empty the toy box as often as you allow her to! She loves her toys!! She would do well with older kids (7-10 years). Nikki needs a fenced yard to keep her safe!
NIKKI is in a foster home in Indianapolis, Indiana. She is microchipped, spayed and up-to-date on vaccinations. She is heartworm negative and current on preventatives. If you are looking for a new fur kid send in an adoption application with Nikki’s name on it. You will be glad you did!

My adoption fee is only $300.

Molly Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Medium

MollyMolly
Hi all, My name is Molly! I am an 11 year old Standard Schnauzer in search of my furever home.
My Life before rescue was awful. My sole existences was to make babies. I was sold from one breeder to another. Had my ears tattooed and cut, and had very little human contact.
During my last litter, I got an infection which made me unable to have any more puppies. I was of no use to the breeder, so I was sold yet again. Lucky for me, a rescuer was watching, saw my pic, and came for me.
Life for me is now wonderful. I’m living indoors with my foster family. I have a nice fluffy bed of my own, and lots of bones to chew on. I love playing with my fur brothers and sisters in the yard and I love rolling in the grass.
I’m still very skeptical of humans, because most of them have all been mean to me. I’m learning that they can be good. I now love being petted, and will take treats from mom’s hand, but it’s still such a scary thing for me.
My foster mom is looking for the perfect home for me, if you feel that could be your home please fill out the app for me.
I’m 47 lbs. crate trained, housebroken, utd on shots. Fostered by Amy.

My adoption fee is only $275.

Hunter 04-19 Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

HunterHunterHunter
My name is HUNTER – I am a 10 year-old miniature schnauzer – without the schnauzer haircut. But, my foster mom says I’m a handsome dude – even without it! I have just been recently diagnosed with diabetes. I am now on a special food diet and 2 shots of insulin a day. That’s it – that’s all you have to do to keep me happy and healthy! It’s as easy as that!
My foster mom say... HUNTER is a kind, sweet, and affectionate gentleman. He is a home surrender and very well socialized and laid back. He is very happy hanging out on the sofa with his people – and loves to go for walks and car rides. He gets along well with the other dogs (and cats) in the house – he barks at the cats but never really bothers them. He needs a fenced yard – and extra potty breaks. Diabetes makes him drink more – and, of course, need to go more. If you have a doggy door to the yard that would be awesome! He’s not much of a barker, but he will let you know when he sees or hears something near his home!
HUNTER is in a foster home in Indianapolis, Indiana. He is microchipped, neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations. He is heartworm negative and current on preventatives.
If you are looking for a new fur kid send in an adoption application with HUNTER’s name on it. You will be glad you did!

His adoption fee is only $225.

Wendi 05-25 Has Been Adopted!!! Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Small

WendiWendi
Hi all, my name is Wendi. I am a 5 months old Schnauzer Mix girl. I weigh 11 lbs. now, but am expected to be 20 lbs. when fully grown.
Why is a cute girl like me in rescue... well my story is short but very sad. I was born on Christmas Day 2016, and a couple of months later adopted by my mom. My mom and me had some great times together, she made sure I wanted for nothing. My life with mom was cut very short, as just a few weeks ago she went into the hospital for surgery, but it didn’t go well. My mom passed away. We had no other family, so a very kind a neighbor took me in and found Schnauzer Rescue to care for me.
I am now in foster care and having a blast. I love my foster brothers and sisters, even the furry thing they call a cat. I love toys, chew bones, and running in the yard. I even enjoyed eating a couple of those cicada things
I am completely house broke, and crate trained. I do cry some when placed in my crate for my foster parents to leave, but settle quickly. At night I go right in my crate and sleep their all night. I love to be where ever my people are. I still have some sharp puppy teeth to lose, and have lots of puppy energy. My foster mom thinks I’d do best in a fenced area with another pup.
I am utd on shots and to be spayed soon. If you think I’d make a great fur-ever addition to your family, please fill out an application for Wendi

My adoption fee is only $350.

Mabel 05-26 Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Small

MabelMabel
Hi there... my name is Mabel and I am a girl schnauzer who weighs 18 lbs. and am about 9 years old. My life has been pretty sad until I came into rescue last month. I was found as a stray wandering the streets of Louisville. The doggie police saw I needed help and took me to the local shelter there. I was dehydrated, malnourished and had worms at the time. Not long after that I had a family that adopted me... that only lasted for a few weeks when they decided they did not want the responsibility of a dog and brought me back to the shelter.
What did I do wrong to deserve being so brokenhearted?
Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati heard my story and transported me to Cincinnati. I am now in a foster home with five other fur kids. My teeth were cleaned and I had a great physical. I do have a heart murmur, but nothing that requires meds.
I am still working on my house manners and climbing steps but progressing each day.  My foster mom will tell you that I never bark and am very submissive... you will hardly know I am in the house except for the sound of my metal tags. I am great with older kids and love older adults. A fenced yard would be wonderful as I love to wander sometimes when I hear a strange sound.
Please consider filling out an application for me. When you look into my big, brown eyes, you will know how much I thank you.

My adoption fee is only $250.

Indee 05-27 Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Small

IndeeIndeeIndee
Hi all, My name is Indee. 8 yrs old, and 18 lbs.
What’s a cute girl like me doing in rescue you ask. Well... unlike most of the other pups in rescue, I’ve had a great life. I’ve had my very own family since I was just weeks old. I am loved and have always had great care, which is what made the decision to give me up so hard.
Our family had always been just me and my fur brother. Over the years, little humans joined our family and the older I got the more they made me really nervous, my family started to trust me less and less with them. For this reason they started searching for me a new home. They didn’t want just any home for me, they wanted the perfect home. Mom made sure that would happen by driving me all the way from Pennsylvania to join Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati.
I’ve been in rescue a couple of weeks and am adjusting fine. I’m spending my days playing with other fur kids, sunning myself outside and just hanging out with my foster mom on the couch.
I have many things to offer my new family as I’m utd on all my shots, spayed, microchipped, and completely house broken and crate trained. I just recently had a dental and a great check up. My foster mom says I’m such a good girl. I am good with other dogs, but wouldn’t be bothered if I was an only pup. I also don't mind kitties. I need a fenced yard, and no small children.
If you think you would be a good fit for me, please fill out an application for Indee.

My adoption fee is only $275.

Volder 06-28 Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

VolderVolderVolder
Hi there,
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Voldemort. I just turned seven years last month and weigh 11 lbs.
I am a Schnorkie which means I am half Yorkie and half Schnauzer. My parents bought me as a puppy from a breeder and gave me my unusual name from hearing it in a Harry Potter movie. Just call me Volder for short!
Life was good until recently when the baby they had started crawling and all of a sudden, I was the one in the way and causing trouble.
I really love to play with toys and it was hard to know the difference between mine and the baby. It was a hard decision; but they thought it best to give me to a rescue so I would have a happy life again.
I live in Cincinnati along with a foster mom and dad and five other fur kids. It is a blast here... big, fenced yard, lot of toys, and attention and doggie doors which I already knew. I would love to find a forever home with a secure, physical fence since I am such a small guy.
Of course, no children is a requirement as well. In fact, if I even hear a baby cry on the television, I run and hide!
I am completely housebroken, and trained in basic commands. I have no health issues, am microchipped and just had my pearlies cleaned.
If you have room in your home, I have so much love to give and can’t wait to play fetch with you, and can’t wait to hear from you. 
Thanks, Volder

Lucylee 06-29 On Hold Schnauzer • Senior • Female • Small

Lucylee
Hi, my name is Lucylee and I’m a schnauzer girl. I’m 18 pounds of sweetness. I’m in rescue because my mom thought it was best for me because she was in poor health. I’m living in Florence Kentucky with my foster family that has a couple of older children and I have a fur brother. I am house trained and good with other dogs and older children. I am not sure about cats. I ride excellent in the car and walk perfectly on a leash. I have been to see the vet. I’ve had my teeth cleaned and I’m up to date on all my shots and I’m microchipped. Nobody is sure of my exact age, but the vet thinks I’m around 14, but I act much younger. Because of my age I don’t hear very well but that doesn’t stop me from doing all the things I love doing like chasing birds and squirrels. My favorite thing to do is just hang out in the back yard, and for that reason a fenced yard is a must.  In the evening you will usually find me curled up in one of our dog beds or on my foster mom’s lap. She thinks I’m the sweetest thing around.
If you think we would make a good fit, just fill out an application for me.
Thanks for reading my bio.

Chase 06-30 Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

ChaseChaseChaseChase
Hi, my name is Chase but my foster parents call me Romeo – because I’m such a lover! I am up-to-date on shots and house-trained. They had to pull some teeth at my dental but it hasn’t slowed down my appetite or ability to eat one bit! The vet thinks I’m around 6 years old.
No one knows my age exactly or backstory. See, I was found wondering the streets of Stark County, OH. Fortunately, SRC found me at the shelter and took me in. I feel very lucky as I’m having an awesome time at my foster home and can’t wait to find my fur-ever home. I get along great with the other two schnauzers in the house. I do tend to get a bit barky when I see bigger dogs or the neighbor dogs – I need to let them know who’s the boss!
I really want to be near my humans. I get so excited when you come home and will follow you around the house. I don’t exactly believe in personal space and will get all up on you to give you lots of kisses. My foster parents think it’s the cutest thing, and keep saying “oh you got me!” For this reason, I’d do best with older kids who understand I’m just loving on them.
I have good ‘hops’ and can jump on the king-sized bed and couches all my myself so I can get near you. I love snoozing, hanging out, and am always wiggling my behind – I’m a happy pup! I’m being fostered in Cincinnati, OH.

My adoption fee is only $275.
